Your laser is a high performance, fine tuned machine. In order to ensure it runs smoothly, regular maintenance is required. Failure to perform regular maintenance can result in system problems and impact your final product quality. When you invest a substantial amount of money in a piece of equipment, like a laser, maintenance time is a given. Uptime is the key to your productivity and ability to move product through your facility. Over time, contaminants like moisture, hydrocarbons, halo carbons and other impurities threaten the up time of your laser. These impurities pass through your resonator chamber and can damage your expensive mirrors and optics. Crucial to your beam power and beam stability, optics and mirrors provide the foundation for cut quality and speed. With an industry standard resonator gas, optics and mirrors get dirtier quicker and more maintenance is required – and more often. Meaning these contaminants impact your process quality, costing you resources and time. Praxair’s LaserStar 5.5 resonator gas, helps you avoid more frequent, productivity eating maintenance, helping your laser operate at peak performance, for longer periods of time.
Nearly 10 times cleaner than the minimum industry standard, Praxair’s patented LaserStar 5.5 resonator gas (a 99.9995 percent pure, pre-blended mixture of helium, nitrogen and carbon dioxide) is specially designed to help extend the life of your expensive consumables and parts, equates to less repairs at maintenance check ups. With LaserStar 5.5 resonator gas, it takes 20 cylinders to introduce the same level of contaminants in just two cylinders of the industry standard resonator gas.
While less maintenance time and increased peak performance provides instant gratification for any metfab operation, the true benefit behind Praxair’s LaserStar 5.5 gas is the improved productivity over the long haul and the positive impact to your bottom line.
